Join us in June for San Diego Startup Week #SDSW 2016 !!

The annual Startup Week in San Diego will highlight the city’s growing role as a hub for technology innovation and new companies.

The five-day event beginning Monday brings together entrepreneurs to share progress, exchange resources, and celebrate San Diego’s thriving innovation community.

Mayor Kevin Faulconer will kick off the event at a press conference in Horton Plaza Park on Monday.

Tracks include launching a tech business, finding seed money and growing the operation. Cyber security, biotech and cross-border opportunities are among the areas of focus.

The downtown startup crawl on Wednesday evening will take attendees of a tour of 17 companies, and Thursday will be demo night at the Broadway Pier pavilion for new startups and their products.

The event is sponsored by Startup San Diego, a grassroots, community organization focused on bringing San Diego entrepreneurs together and making resources for starting and growing business readily available.

A week-long pass to all events is $60 and available online.
